Microsoft Releases Blue Screen Of Death Version 3.2 -> ScreenSaver

BlueScreen Screen Saver v3.2

Published: November 1, 2006
Introduction

One of the most feared colors in the NT world is blue. The infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) will pop up on an NT system whenever something has gone terribly wrong. Bluescreen is a screen saver that not only authentically mimics a BSOD, but will simulate startup screens seen during a system boot.

<table border=“0” cellpadding=“0” cellspacing=“0”><tbody><tr><td class=“listBullet” valign=“top”>•</td><td class=“listItem”>On NT 4.0 installations it simulates chkdsk of disk drives with errors!

</td></tr><tr><td class=“listBullet” valign=“top”>•</td><td class=“listItem”>On Win2K and Windows 9x it presents the Win2K startup splash screen, complete with rotating progress band and progress control updates!

</td></tr><tr><td class=“listBullet” valign=“top”>•</td><td class=“listItem”>On Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 it present the XP/Server 2003 startup splash screen with progress bar!

</td></tr></tbody></table> Bluescreen cycles between different Blue Screens and simulated boots every 15 seconds or so. Virtually all the information shown on Bluescreen’s BSOD and system start screen is obtained from your system configuration - its accuracy will fool even advanced NT developers. For example, the NT build number, processor revision, loaded drivers and addresses, disk drive characteristics, and memory size are all taken from the system Bluescreen is running on.

  		Use Bluescreen to amaze your friends and scare your enemies! 			
  		Bluescreen runs on Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows 9x (it requires DirectX).

LMAO I was just this minute reading the article and zapped back to cdfreaks to post it myself…Womble, you are 30 seconds ahead of me :stuck_out_tongue:

I presume that this is the same screen saver originally made by SysInternals which was acquired by Microsoft a few months ago?

At least someone at Microsoft has a sense of humour. :slight_smile:

Oooh … for those people that just don’t think they have enough stress in their life …
